The 14900KS, yes, no, maybe and finally yes?


The saga surrounding the arrival of a possible i9-14900KS processor has been rekindled with the detection of this processor in the OCCT software (source wccftech). Indeed, a copy of the i9-14900KS has been used in the software, providing information on the latter. Please note, however, that this in no way confirms that it has yet been put on the market. These may only be pre-production parts. While we were expecting its announcement at CES 2024, Intel has remained very silent on the arrival or otherwise of this processor, which will have a boost frequency of up to 6.2 GHz.

Should this i9-14900KS finally hit the market, you’ll need a cooling system worthy of the name to take full advantage of its potential. In terms of specifications, the i9-14900KS will feature 24 cores and 32 threads in an 8 P-Core and 16 E-Core configuration, like the i9-14900K(F). The chip will feature 36 MB of L3 cache and 32 MB of L2 cache. Boost frequency will be set at 6.2 GHz, making this the fastest chip currently available. That’s 200 MHz faster than the Core i9-13900KS and Core i9-14900K(F) processors.

Frequency on all cores could rise from 5.8 GHz to 5.9 GHz, as OCCT software information seems to confirm. Let’s wait and see whether this i9-14900KS has a commercial future or not.
